Ama Bazar is a collective of highly diverse musicians based primarily in London formed in Autumn 2012. Their repertoire focuses in particular on folk dance, from many corners of the world, from klezmer to flamenco, tango to salsa.They have a bright, positive & energetic edge with this foundation of danceable rhythms, but always giving reflective space both for performers and listeners. Often thrown unexpectedly into their performances are moments of instrument-switching and tango-dancing. Led by clarinettist Alice Mary Williamson, their warmly eclectic and embracing ethos is strongly reflected in the vastly broad-minded, international and versatile mix of musicians who play with the group.Regular members are: Alice Mary Williamson (clarinet + voice), Alice Barron (violin), Anisa Arslanagic (viola + violin), Tim Sharp (accordion + piano), Ulises Diaz (percussion + voice), Pablo Dominguez (guitar, bass + percussion), James Adams (guitar, bass + percussion)
